_MG_9311.jpgYou know that fall is just around the corner when you start receiving apples from your church members. Apples, apples, and more apples. I'm not complaining; I'm preparing for winter. 
_MG_9312.jpgCut and core all of those apples.
_MG_9317.jpgThen boil them on the stove until they're soft.
_MG_9322.jpgFind a few handsome little boys to help you out. 
_MG_9321.jpgThey usually just volunteer eagerly.
_MG_9325.jpgWith this awesome Kitchenaid Mixer attachment you'll have applesauce in no time. The fruit and vegetable strainer separates the peels from the sauce.
_MG_9326.jpgSauce in the bowl and peels go directly into the garbage disposal in the sink. Perfect.
_MG_9327.jpgI like to keep my sauce warm on the stove and add a little cinnamon.
_MG_9331.jpgJar your applesauce.
_MG_9333.jpgThen process it on the stove for 30 minutes.
_MG_9337.jpgBam! It's done and ready to enjoy this winter.
